    General Motoring Discussion
    If you didn't know it was from Vauxhall how many people would think a car with the name Grandland X came from the Chinese car industry? :ponder:
  3. Vauxhall tuning box.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone here know if a Vauxhall Insignia 2.0CDTI tuning box will work on the Alfa 159 2.0 JTDM?. There are the same engine producing the same power with the same common rail I would like to think it will.....but Italian electrics ……!. But it would be nice to hear from...

  5. Vauxhall 2.0CDti and Alfa JTDm differences

    General Alfa Discussion
    I have jest been reading in the June issue of car mechanics magazine about their project Vauxhall Insignia. They have a serious engine issue with it, like cracked crankshaft, stuffed main bearings and a few other things. The cause they said was down to the DPF regenration process and Diesel...
  6. CF3 V6 MAF - Is there a Vauxhall Donor Alternative?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello All Having gone through the MAF threads, it's clear there is a cheap Vauxhall MAF that contains the right sensor for a CF2 V6 - but no-one mentions the donor of the F 00C 2G2 044 sensor that I need for my CF3. Anyone know which Vauxhall MAF might have one of these hidden away in it's...

    The BBC reporting that GM wants to flog its European operations to Peugeot. Imagine the festering turds they could conjure up between them.

  10. The Vauxhall Adamski

    General Motoring Discussion
    I can't say for sure that this realisation wasn't preceded by a bump to the head - possibly quite a big bump to the head - but I'm starting to think the Vauxhall Adam is quite cool. There. Said it. I see a black one (black body, black roof, nice factory alloys) almost everyday, and, knowing...
  11. Vauxhall Vectra. Could you?

    General Motoring Discussion
    I am currently looking at buying a replacement for out Mk1 Ford Focus. We could do with something bigger, as the kids are getting bigger and the amount of junk we need to cart around has got bigger as well. The Focus is also getting a bit worn out as it now sports 132,000 miles. I have up to...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Got an interim car, an 05 Signum that is just for getting us to Cornwall and back and a few trips until we buy a newer car between now and the end of the year (though the wife may swap to it from her newer Meriva due to it's lack of power). Anyway, it's been recently serviced which got rid of a...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    ive just done a service on my friends 2009 1.9 insignia and was surprised to find they share a very similar layout underneath. oil filter was the same and in the same stupid place, more importantly his subframe didnt look too healthy either at the front. his tracking was also out and had...
  17. V6 cheap Vauxhall MAF link

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks. So my MAF died in the perfect way today, in a long line of traffic. Doh! To the point where it starts then dies immediately.

  19. 110 Years of Vauxhall

    Motoring Images
    I noticed, as the bus went past the local Vauxhall dealer this morning, that they are celebrating 110 years of Vauxhall. Now we have, at times, been a bit hard on Vauxhall largely because of chavved up Corsas, the pointless and stupid re-design of the indicator stalk, the Vectra, Cavaliers...
